Corporate Volunteer Grant Programs:

Companies use these programs to encourage volunteerism in local, national and international communities.  Companies provide monetary grants to organizations where employees volunteer on a regular basis or for an extended stretch of time.  Companies either provide a set monetary donation for every hour an employee volunteers or provide grants once employees reach certain thresholds.  For example:

  • A company may provide a $10 grant for every hour an employee volunteers up to $10,000 annually.
  • A company may offer cash grants for nonprofits once an employee volunteers for at least 20 hours in a year.
